Diary of an old cheeser

Hi there! Like other blogs, this is my chance to wax lyrical (some might say talk utter cr*p) about a) what's happening in my life b) all of my pet obsessions in particular music, tv, movies, books and other generally connected things, quite often of the retro, old and "cheesy" variety. Hence the title of my blog. Feel free to leave a comment if the mood takes you. There's nothing like a good chinwag about one's favourite topics and besides I love to meet new people! Cheers, Simon

Just under...

10 days till the new series of Doctor Who!!

The Third Season kicks off on Saturday 31st March.

In the meantime, check out the official BBC Doctor Who website, featuring a still of David Tennant and Freema Agyeman against backings of various locations from the new series! Looks like they'll be visiting some interesting places...how exciting!!

    ...I guess I'll never know the joys of Dr. Who.


    so, catherine tate made the news here for having the top selling DVD in the UK -- i think it must be her special for comic relief. anyway, i noticed that i can get it with the dr who special she did at discount. hmmmm....

    but, would i understand it with no prior dr. who knowledge other than what i've learned from your blog?!?!?

    I get the feeling that this new series of Dr Who is going to have a harder edge to it... should be interesting. Although I liked Billie Piper things got a bit too cosy...

    T minus nine days and counting! Time the BBC put up some wallpapers for the first episode, don’t you think? The big question must be how well the chemistry will work between David and Freema. To be honest, I’m just relieved Catherine Tate didn’t stay longer than one episode. For me, anyone would be better than her. Even Camille Coduri!! It’s their voices, in nagging mode, that grate. Anyway, fingers crossed for some decent science fiction!!!

    He's got a new suit, hasn't he? Someone told me that Billie's got a cameo in this series but I don't believe them. Oh and HAPPY BIRTHDAY for the other day. x

    Matty - Come on now! It's never too late (as the Dr once said, quoting Kylie Minogue).

    The discount buy sounds like a bargain, I'd go for it if I were you! The show isn't that hard to understand, believe me, and armed with all the info you've accumulated from my blog you'd be fine I'm sure...

    And what about that friend of yours who was meant to lend you his DVDs? Get on his case!!

    Steve - yes, perhaps the new series will have a darker edge, we'll see. I definitely think that Billie went at the right time, the Dr/Rose relationship was getting decidedly smug at times which I found annoying. Nothing wrong with ringing in some changes!

    Tim - and now T minus one week and counting!! Yaaay!! We shall see about David and Freema but I have a good vibe about them. There's a Dr-companion kiss in the first episode apparently, I wonder what reason they'll come up with for it this time?

    I actually liked Catherine Tate as Donna, despite my initial misgivings, however I'm not sure her character would have had longevity in the show and she did have her limitations.

    Lost Boy - thanks for the birthday wishes!

    Yes David T wears a brand new blue suit in the first few episodes - looks pretty funky I think! But he reverts to the brown pinstripe one later on. I don't believe that about Billie - there are way too many rumours flying around!
